How Can I Experience This?
Final Kick VR is the name of this soccer application. It’s a soccer VR app that will make you feel like you’re the real soccer player. You can turn your head in 360-degree to see your surrounding and all. You will stand in the same place with your opponents, your supporters, and the staffs.
There is no separation. You won’t just sit there playing with your fingertips on the screen—you will BeThere and experience it.

P.S. I used my old iPhone 5, and it works great.

My Experience of Final Kick VR
I truly felt like a soccer player.
Standing in the middle of a stadium, people screaming and supporting me, the camera flashing toward me.
And, I, as a goalkeeper, stood in front of another player a.k.a my opponent who was ready to kick the ball.
I was a little bit nervous, as the referee blew the whistle.
I bent down and focused my sight as keen as an eagle’s eyes.
And then, he started running.
He kicked the ball.
The ball was flying.
It happened too fast but slow at the same time. I could feel my heart racing, as I didn’t want him to win it. I still remember the confusion, like, “Should I move to the left or to the right?”
The ball was getting closer.
It was flying a few meters above me, on the left direction.
And then, I…
I literally jumped in real life. To the left direction.
When I fell on the ground, I moved my head a little to catch the ball.
The ball fell on the ground right in front of the goalpost.
But I caught it.
The supporters were screaming in happiness. I saw the camera flashing. I felt the euphoria.
I did it.
And, that was just the beginning, that was just the first tournament, the first level.
Not only was I becoming a goalkeeper, but I would also be the one who kicks the ball at the penalty. There was also a freekick tournament. If I want to enhance my skill, I could join the training.
And, the feels of becoming a popular soccer player is real.
The Gameplay of Final Kick VR
You just need to work it with your head.
Like, if you want to set direction to kick the ball, use your head. Move your head faster to make your kick more powerful.
As a goalkeeper, you will see your hands as the pointer. It will move around as you move your head. However, if you want to catch the ball, you really need to use your whole body, like jumping or anything, because…first, it makes you feel like the real goalkeeper; second, somehow, it’s much easier to catch the ball; third, you’re also exercising from your home. 🙂

But make sure you won’t hit a wall.

That sounds positive.
Now, let’s move to what I think about Final Kick VR.
What I Think About Final Kick VR
1. The feels is real.
How many times should I say that I felt like a popular soccer player? I’m in love with the pressure in the middle of people screaming, the camera flashing, and all those little details that made me a soccer player. Thank you, Developers, for bringing Final Kick to Virtual Reality.
2. As this is still the early days of VR, I must say that the graphics is not bad at all.
As the day goes by, it will improve. Can’t wait to see how it becomes.
3. The reaction of the opponent is funny, sometimes.
Especially, when you fail. They will be laughing at you.
4. A very, very great way to exercise.
YES. Especially when you become a goalkeeper. You have to move your whole body, like jumping, to catch the ball.
I am not a person who exercises a lot, so I’m very happy to use this app, as I could move more and do some unplanned exercising.
5. Final Kick VR teaches you to be more intuitive as a goalkeeper.
I have never been a goalkeeper in my life, but I feel this app gives me a goalkeeper’s intuition.
6. The beginning of something big of virtual reality in sporting.
Today we may only become a goalkeeper in Final Kick VR. Give it some years, and we may be able to play the real soccer in virtual reality.
What I expect for the next update of Final Kick VR
1. No more crashing after a few minutes of playing.
And, I’m pretty sure they will fix this issue in the near future.
Anyway, I don’t really mind about the crash, as it usually happens after I finish the tournament. And, I don’t know why, but it feels “long” in the game even though you only spend like three to five minutes.
2. I hope we can hear disappointment screaming from the audience when we fail.
Because it will give us more pressure, and, I guess, that’s what makes a game more challenging?
3. Am I the only one who feels the white line on the green grass is shaking?
I don’t know the reason why it’s shaking, but we’ll see where this will go.
At the end of the day, there is no such a perfect application. Each application is great with its own flaws. The most important thing is an application needs “emotion”, and Final Kick VR has got the feels since the first time I started it.
One more thing: This is just the beginning.
Final Kick VR is worth a try.
